salidas y entradas exits and entrances
In this work by artists Jessica Hankey and Erin Johnson, theatricality is a means of enlarging the self and creating new realities. In their multi-channel video installation Salidas y Entradas Exits and Entrances, participants from three of El Paso’s senior centers explore the boundaries between rehearsal, improvisation, performance, and critique — traversing the spectrum from the permissible and everyday to the extraordinary or false. With the senior center — a site of social contact, care, and collectivity —as a stage, the performers take up and play with social, political, and geographical imaginaries.
